[Vintage 1992 - sampled 2004] A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, dust, peach, and oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, malt and fruit - especially peach. The alcohol runs burning over the tongue and in the throat - and still the body is surprisingly thin for an 8% ABV beer.joergen (28164) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2006

The aroma is slightly fruity. The color is a dark orange and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is fruity and prickling from a good malt blend with some notes of alcohol. But all in all it is a very simple flavor with a good palate.

Bottled. Pale hazy yellowish orange colour with mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma is kind of serrt fruity, with hints of oak and some alcoholic sweetness. Flavour is kind of juniperlike, along with alcohol and hops in finish. Quite dry in aftertaste.
Draught at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Clear golden, average head. Aroma of banana and canned pineapple. Sweet and fruity with some drying grassy hops. Spritzy and lively with dense malt underneath. Peppery arousing alcohol comes through before a spicy finish with some bitterness. An unadventurous but really well made tripel. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2005

Sampling of the 1990 version in 2002: Pale amber, no head. Fruity aroma. Malty, sweet and mature. Short, slightly dusty flavour. Good, but probably over the hill agewise.
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 (Bottle 25 cl) This version at 8% ABV. I found a vintage version of this one. (The best before date was in 1991). Fully golden, apparently clear beer with heavy sediment. (Chinese river-water). Pronounced head and vital carbonation. The outlines have vanished but I do sense some bitter hops. 231004
